This bonus episode is dedicated in celebration of the anniversary when Jessica Cabeen and her family welcomed their son Isiah home from Ethiopia on December 23rd. In this amplified story, you will hear how Jessica experienced depression when the process for adoption had stalled out, but how she also rose out of it and into the calling of being an adoptive parent. She shares the reality of what she calls “after the airport” in parenting an adopted child, and she inspires us with the grace and perseverance she and her husband show in raising their boys. You will not want to miss Jessica’s awe inspiring interview.

Note from Sarah:
Amplifying Jessica’s story on Isiah’s adoption day brings me indescribable joy. Many of us know Jessica’s professional side, but knowing her personal story in relation to parenting offers further insight into Jessica’s spirit.
When Jessica and I left a writer’s retreat we took with Jessica Johnson in December 2017, we had a deep discussion that our voices were going to be used for a higher calling in our futures. Elevating her voice in this episode and on this special celebration day in her life is that mission coming alive.
Jessica inspires me daily, and I am excited for her to do that for you through the mission in her message.
